“Nice restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Lived next to this restaurant for 10 days. Went there at day & night!
It's a nice restaurant, with an absolute beautiful decoration.
The food is great (love the guacamole and the soft tortillas) as well as the margarita!!
The only cons are: it is too packed. You have to keep your elbow inside the space of your very small square table. Not really easy to eat something with cutlery.
Also, but I guess that's a New York stuff, once you're done, the staff is nearly kinking you out.

“Good Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012 via mobile

Visited mid afternoon on a Friday in early June

Very friendly and fast service. Yet not rushed

I had a pork sandwich which was very good. My wife had chicken dish with a great sauce

Reasonably priced: a beer and a drink, guacamole appetizer (great guacamole), and two entrees around $50 with tip

“Fabulous Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

A great place to eat if you love Mexican food - very genuine, very busy and great food. The Plata Don was fabulous but bring a big appetite as it is huge
